Bruins host Humboldt

A Bruins player hits a ground ball during their June 19 home summer baseball game against Southern Humboldt.

The Bruins baseball team has kept busy this summer with intermittent baseball games.

They hosted a home game last week, inviting Southern Humboldt to Brookings-Harbor High School for a double-header.

Due to time constraints, however, the doubleheader was turned into a single extended game of nine innings.

The Bruins took an early lead with a single run in the first inning, followed by another four uncontested runs in the second inning and three more in the third inning to take things to 8-0. Neither team scored from there until the eight innings, despite the Bruins repeatedly putting runners on base.

Humboldt managed to score a single run in the eight and then another four in the ninth to wrap things up at 8-5 in the Bruins favor.

Bruins coach Keith Wallin has several more games lined up sporadically throughout the summer to keep the team busy before breaking until next spring.

Bruins recognized

Earlier this week, Brookings City Council honored the Bruins baseball team this year after a powerful season. The Bruins went undefeated in league, made it to the quarterfinals of state, broke the record for most games won in a single season and ended at rank No. 2 in the OSAA 3A rankings.

This was also the team’s first year playing in a new league at the 3A level.
